Can you tell me if I have kidney disease? Creatine reports are high

I am 58 year male, caucasian. I have better that average medical knowledge as I am a veterinarian. I have had two creatine tests done the last month. The first value was 1.28. The second value 3 weeks later was 1.24. Normal value from Emory university lab is .7 to 1.2. Associated with the creatinine of 1.28 my BUN was 15, normal value is 8 to 25. The GFR was calculated to be 58. Do I have kidney disease?

HI there, as you have rightly stated both your creatinine levels are beyond the normal range. Along with it your GFR is reduced, the normal level being between 90-120ml/min. The decreased GRF along with rinsing creatinine does indicate that you are going into chronic renal failure. Tho' it is not absolute but you do need to get a renal profile done and visit your general physician who should be able to guide you to the next course of action. Do take care.
